Illustration Friday - Super Hero




The drawing above is of my grandfather, my superhero. He served in World War II, battled cancer for two decades, and taught me how to draw. He also taught me how to stand up to bullies and to respect myself. This picture will never be good enough in my mind. I wish a reference could show how amazing this man really was. Then again, he would have smiled and told me it is great if he were alive.
